Horse Racing: Lost In The Moment becomes the 100th winner trained by Bin Suroor


As Lost In The Moment completed a Meydan double for jockey Mikhael Barzalona in the Tapeta handicap, which covered the distance of a mile and three furlongs, he helped trainer Saeed Bin Suroor attain a record, as he became the first ever trainer to have a hundred winners under his care, with Lost In The Moment hitting the century mark for him.

The horse, who is currently four years old, was previously under the training of Jeremy Noseda and put in all his strength and ability to win against the previous winner of the race, Prizefighting –a formidable rival trained by Saeed Bin Suroor’s Godolphin colleague, trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni.

The two racing rivals were neck and neck for the last two furlongs, as they both overtook the brilliantly performing Halicarnassus, who bit the dust soon after entering the straight when his jockey Bon Grain took a bad fall.

Three times a winner last term under trainer Noseda, Lost In The Moment won the race by a distance of about half a length from Prizefighting, thus enabling Bin Suroor to get the title of the first trainer, since the carnival started seven years ago in 2004, to saddle 100 winning horses.

In a photo taken of the race, racehorse Burdlaz, also trained by Al Zarooni, barely made it to the finish line after Prizefighting, getting him third place in the race.

Jockey Mikhael Barzalona –the victor- is based in France and had also managed to bag the opener on Al Zarooni’s City Style race.

Meanwhile, Happy Dubai, partnered with jockey Frankie Dettori, claimed another victory as he thundered down the outside and reached the finish line first, for the second week running for UAE champion trainer Ali Rashid Al Rahie.

Happy Dubai is now four years old and was sired by Indian Ridge. The horse, who holds the general 6-1 odds and is second to favourite in Britain, swooped at the furlong pole, giving an extremely impressive performance in the six furlong turf surface handicap.

The horse faced no trouble at all overtaking Dohasa, who had just left behind Ireland’s Rock Jock to make it to second place.

Rock Jock, who came in third, had shown a good overall performance in the race, under Ted Durcan, before the other horses finally caught up to him in the final hundred yards.
